The Comox Valley SPCA is in urgent need of gift cards from Woofy’s or Bosley’s, Puppy Milk Replacement, or Science Diet canned Puppy food to help some orphans get a good start in life.
On March 22, a box of six puppies was brought into the Port Alberni branch of the SPCA, after they were found abandoned, without their mother. The puppies were only a few days old and needed urgent care.
Since the Port Alberni shelter was full, they contacted the Comox Valley shelter to ask for help. A staff member from Comox Valley branch jumped into action, driving halfway to meet a staff member from Port Alberni.
The first night was a little difficult for two devoted staff members, who woke up every two hours to bottle-feed the puppies. All of the little puppies took to the bottle almost immediately, except the lone female pup who was a little stubborn, and required a little more convincing.
Currently in homes with foster volunteers, the six siblings — Thatcher, Peter, Dennis, Paris, Ryan and little stubborn Susan — are all doing well but require a special diet of Puppy Milk Replacer. In a few short weeks their diet will include Science Diet canned Puppy food.
The BC SPCA Comox Valley & District Branch provides care and protection to hundreds of animals each year. Your gift can help give a homeless, injured or abused animal a second chance.
